Montana Scaffolding achieves the quality management standard ISO 9001
Montana Scaffolding Ltd is a scaffolding & access specialist that prides itself in its commitments to innovation, customer satisfaction and rigorous safety management.
Montana’s scaffolding solutions can be seen across the South-West from important national heritage buildings, to industrial process plants and housing developments.
Why ISO 9001?
Montana Scaffolding carries out a large volume of work for principle contractors, who place a high value on customer service and the quality of workmanship. The Directors’ analysis of competitors revealed that certification to the ISO 9001 quality management standard, using a certification body approved by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service, would be unique amongst scaffolders in the South-West and so would be likely to confer a major competitive advantage.
How Construction Certification helped
A Construction Certification consultant worked with the senior team to identify where their existing management systems already conformed to ISO 9001 and any gaps that needed to be filled. The consultant helped the team to develop new processes and procedures where they were needed and carried out internal audits on the complete system to confirm that it was working as planned. Finally, the consultant guided the senior team through its first formal ISO 9001 Management Review and worked with them during the certification visit to ensure that the audit ran smoothly.
What Montana Scaffolding had to say about Construction Certification
“On behalf of Montana Scaffolding we wish to thank you for your efforts in assisting with our successful achievement of the IS0 9001:2008 certification.
From our perspective your advice and translation of the standard into a form that we could grasp and run with was invaluable, taking the systems we already had in place and enabling us to improve them and devise new systems to enable us to comply with the criteria.
Having an independent perspective both throughout the process and during the audits made the process run smoothly and achieved the desired results.
Montana has been striving for recognition in both Safety and Quality of service and is now receiving excellent feedback from our valued clients on both counts.
In terms of future progression to ISO 14001 and OSHAS18001 we will no doubt be in touch for your services.
We would have no hesitation in recommending you to future clients.”
